Brendan Aloysius Barry, a partner in Shutts & Bowen’s Fort Lauderdale office, was unanimously elected President of the Board of Directors of Fish Florida during the organization’s January 2023 Board of Directors Meeting held at the historic West Palm Beach Fishing Club.
Fish Florida, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, supports organizations that teach people, especially children, about Florida’s fish and aquatic habitats through donations of fishing equipment, grants, and scholarships. The mission of Fish Florida is to promote public awareness of and encourage the protection of marine fisheries and coastal habitats. This is accomplished through clinics, classes, seminars, presentations, displays and other means designed to teach and promote responsible angling, particularly to Florida’s youth.
As an avid angler, a passionate outdoorsman and an advocate for smart conservation and education, Brendan has developed a passion for the marine environment. While he is indeed a passionate outdoorsman, Brendan is equally proud to be an advocate for conservation and education, with an eye to preserving and maintaining natural habitats and Florida’s ecosystem for future generations.
Brendan’s two-year term as Board President begins on July 14, 2023.
